IF YOU WERE THE ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD

Sometimes, when I feel bad and things look blue
I wish, a girl I had, say one like you...
Someone, within my heart to build her throne
Someone, who'd never part, to call my own
I'll try, a love to teach, dear, fond and true
I sigh, a world to reach, dear, just made for me and you

Chorus: If I were the only girl in the world
And you were the only boy
Nothing else would matter in the world today
We could go on loving in the same old way
A Garden of Eden just made for two
With nothing to mar our joy
I would say such wonderful things to you
There would be such wonderful things to do
If I were the only girl in the world
And you were the only boy.

No one, I'll ever care for, dear, but you
No one, I'll fancy, therefore love me do
Your eyes, have set me dreaming all night long
Your eyes, have set me scheming, right or wrong
All days, we'll be together, side by side
Always, in any weather, whatever else betide,

Chorus: If I were the only girl in the world
And you were the only boy
Nothing else would matter in the world today
We could go on loving in the same old way
A Garden of Eden just made for two
With nothing to mar our joy
I would say such wonderful things to you
There would be such wonderful things to do
If I were the only girl in the world
And you were the only boy.
